moderation? or modification?

But cut-outs neither add performance or visual improvements.

So to add cut-outs in my estimation is an enhancement. (noun) Not a mod.



Ya?

Ok. . . . . . . . .

So let me clear this up so maybe everyone is on the same page.

See, I told Chris I was done modding my car till I get wheels.

He laughed at me. Psh..... as if............ tsk...........

He basically challenged me that I would still mod my car before the wheels.

So I have to somehow justify cut-outs as not being a mod so I can still give him a nanner nanner.

A waxed car presents a slipperier surface to the wind adding at a minimum .01 mph to your top speed. If you clay bar first, that number JUMPS to .0189 mph. Isn't an action or device that adds to your top speed a MOD?

That's what Chris would have said if PQ showed up with a wild flame job decal on his car. Heck the Wyle E. Coyote decal on the back of my motorcycle helmet has that effect.

so if you go through with this 'enhancement', does that mean you'll have a little more piping down below?









... so to speak

Actually, I bet Chris that I could refer to it as an enhancement and nobody would notice. LMAO
